    Yeah, it can be tough to find fun stuff that isn't already in every tank around. Worth the occasional trip to Aquatic collection. They always seem to have a variety, and plenty in stock when I go there. I also have very good survival rates from them, with no disease as they do treat, and dip their fish. I think the prices are fair there as well.

    Wow! I just love this new photo update! I am so thrilled to hear that the tank is doing so much better and that you are loving the hobby again. Seems like this hobby is full of ups and downs! Always fun to be on the upside :)

    I just love all the variety of colors and textures of the different corals in these photos! Just stunning! I like the new blend of fish as well. I love the beautiful wrasses and the powder blue tang is my absolute favorite. That's one of my dream fish, so I'm thrilled yours made it and is doing well for you! Anyways, just stunning! I hope we get to see even more updates :)

    Thanks everyone. I feel very fortunate to get things back on track. I lost a lot of coral, but it could have been worse. It's an amazing addiction!!! Oh, I mean "hobby." Lol!!

    Very nice! tank indeed!

    My interest was peaked with this unusual coral. My first thought was Australomussa since some of the corallites have a resemblence to mussids, but then again it could also be an unusually thick tissued type of Chalice (Mycedium?). Are the tentacles long and stringy or more uniform like an Acan lord?

    It is a very unusual, chalice like coral. It has fairly thick / long tentacles. I only ever see a few out at night, but can be 6" or so. I lost a few coral before I realized how long they could get. It has similarities with all three of the above mentioned corals.

    Sounds more like a 'Chalice', then. Whatever it is, it's a very cool.

    I say it's a new species that you get to name. Knuckleapora maybe.

    Been over a year since a video update. Took some video last week, and put it together tonight. Hope you enjoy.

    Your clown fish is like a beast. How is the blue chromis working out for you? I'm thinking about doing a school (5 ish) of them.
